I took a ‘selfie’ with Captain UK, we’re all Pirates again tonight! What’s that funny sound Pirates are supposed to say again? Yarr?!
It not be funny, ‘yarr’ is supposed to be intimidating! Loud and scary and such like…do we look scary and intimidating folks?
We wouldn’t be a Plushie PIRATE crew if we didn’t get treasure to bring home now, would we?! Here be our “con swag” from MCM Manchester Comic Con! I like my magical creatures, so I invested in a comic called “Jellybean” by artist sophira-lou, a delightful Shark-lady called “Shelly” by Chaotica-chan and a certain pretty pony called “Princess Celestia”…
Link be holding the latest MyM Mag with him on the cover for his new game “Hyrule Warriors” and art prints by artist naniiebim!
Eren got the biggest share this time, he got Bryce Papenbrook’s autograph, a mug, artwork by Chaotica-chan and charms! I not be jealous though…ye can’t beat a Unicorn Princess with wings, yo ho ho! She be so cute!
Date: 20th July 2014. Location: MCM Manchester Comic Con, Manchester Central, Manchester, UK.
Day 2: Eren met his voice actor Bryce Papenbrook and was almost eaten for lunch by the Female Titan, we found the Pokemon trainers and a Shiny Gyarados, and Link made friends with more Princesses and… The Ghostbusters?!
Date: 19th July 2014. Location: MCM Manchester Comic Con, Manchester Central, Manchester, UK.
Day 1 of the convention: I make friends again with Jack Sparrow and my nation! Link found Princess Zeldas to hug, a Majora’s Mask pillow that was bigger than he was and prodded and poked by two curious Jawas!
We were at the “Challenge Accepted!” Stall…mainly being cute and waving at people as they passed by, yo ho ho!
Can I be in “Game of Thrones” as the Dad of Mochi Dragons?
Here I be with “Charizard” and “Toothless”!
(These fabric mochi dragons were on sale at the “Challenge Accepted” stall at MCM Manchester Comic Con and made by artist ‘Ubermidget’)
Hey everybody! This blog is still alive, and so am I, we’ve just been busy…hanging around for the admin to stop working for a few minutes and update! If you’re around Manchester, UK on Saturday and Sunday, you can find us at Manchester Comic Con at Manchester Central! If you look at the convention map, you can find us at Stall W4. Look out for a Pirate UK (Hetalia), Twilight Princess Link and me at a table filled with pillows and mini plushies! Our name is “Challenge Accepted!”. See you guys at the weekend!
I’ll keep it short and sweet: Come and find us at Manchester Comic Con this weekend me hearties! Ye heard young Eren, we be at Stall W4, “Challenge Accepted!”. Free hug anybody?
The America plushies wish you all a happy and safe July 4th!
(Sorry about the old photo, Pilot America is still away on his honeymoon, but the other guys are still here and celebrating!)
Eren: “Oh. We lost on penalties. That’s it, we’re out of the world Cup!”
Footballer Iggy: “There there mate, you made it this far!”
(Someone is upset tonight because our family team lost. But wait - Eren Jaeger is actually German! Germany are still in the World Cup so…)
True to Greek family fashion, we watched the Costa Rica vs Greece World Cup match tonight. We were all screeching, yelling, booing and cheering at the TV. And I had my hand-made Eren Jaeger plushie dressed up in a Greece Football fit meant for a two year old! XD What a shame the Greek team lost, they’d done so well to get this far too. Outdone on penalties, boo!
The remaining Plushie crew at home who are American are cheering for the USA, who are still in the World Cup.
Pirate UK: “We haven’t abandoned the blog me hearties, Pilot America and I be away from home right now…”
Pilot America: “WE’RE ON OUR HONEYMOON, WOO-HOO!”
Pirate UK: “Not so loud Meri, I think the Navy heard that and we’re miles away from anything!”
Pilot America: “But we can still get Wi-Fi out here, we can’t be THAT far away! Anyway, take your clothes off!”
Pirate UK: “Er-um-EH?!”
Pilot America: “Well you can’t go swimming with your clothes on can ya? You’ll sink!”
Pirate UK: “Oh, right, quite! I’ll put me trunks on then…”
Congrats on the marriage captain.
Pirate UK: “Thank ye kindly Ms Amelia! We promise not t’ be too mushy about it!”
Pilot America: “We’ve got to keep it a secret from the rest of the crew!”
Pirate UK: “…Hmm, well they’ve been joking about it for ages, even young Eren tells us t’ stop acting like “an old married couple”! Somehow I don’t think they’ll be surprised Meri…”
